HDT-s1283 and Bolt through kit

I recently bought an hdt-s1283 from newegg, and when installing it, a plastic push pin broke...I contacted Xigmatek over the problem and they shipped me replacement parts, but gave me the wrong ones! instead of shipping push pins, i recieved a bracket that looks very similar to a bolt through kit..

these are the pictures of the kit i recieved...im assuming this is what it is.

Could anyone tell me how I install this? Do i put this beneath the CPU on the back side of the motherboard and then use the provided bolts to connect it?

Thanks for the help, will mark best answer asap.

    .

    Yes
    You got lucky, cost me like $16
  2. thank you for confirming thats what it is. I'm assuming the black feet on the back of the bracket lay against the back of the mobo to make it not short out? and maybe the adhesive is there to attach it to the back of the case?

    I feel seriously retarded asking these questions, but dont want to fry anything if i install it.

    Depends on the socket, black feet up for 1156/1366, down for 775.
